Database Conversion

Database Conversion

Behind every information managing software program there is a database. Although some rely on a simple database design, most depend on a series of relationships between tables of information. When choosing to move data from one database to another it is necessary to understand and preserve those relationships in the source and destination database. This process is called database conversion.

Import your current data. Call us today to discuss an import of your existing data – spreadsheets, document folder structures, or existing databases.

See below for a step-by-step breakdown of what we can do for you.


Step 1

TrialWorks obtains your current data and begins analysis. We determine the amount of data that will need to be converted, its overall health, address the complexity of the conversion and provide a timeline & quote.

Step 2

Our database engineers build routines that align your old information with screens in the TrialWorks database. This process can take from a few days to a few weeks depending on the data.

Step 3

Data review with a member of our programming team. Review your data in TrialWorks format. Discuss changes required to the routine, schedule a second review if necessary.

Step 4
